Well, as soon as they restore the braces to identify the code
blocks and provide the functionality of advanced statically
type languages, such as threads, async processing, all synchronization
primitives, garbage collection, events and GUI, i'd be willing
to switch to Python. Some of it is already there. But not all.

Except, before doing it, I'd like to know what Python buys me
compared to say Java.
